Michael Gurvin

President & CEO | michael@gurvinjewellers.com

Gurvin Jewellers began in the early 1950’s at 710 West Hastings Street. Michael’s father, Abe Gurvin, single-handedly initiated the art of ‘ear-piercing’, and pierced literally thousands of women’s ears in the fifty’s and sixty’s.  In 1959, the business moved to 866 Granville Street next to the Orpheum Theatre.

Gurvin Jewellers expanded and developed with Michael’s assistance at the helm, and in 1969, a news store was designed and built at 848 Granville Street.

Michael specializes in custom design and enjoys time spent at the work bench, attending to most repairs of our clientele’s fine jewellery. Michael is a very “hands on” jeweller and oversees all aspects of the business; from staff interviewing & hiring, inventory control, finance, marketing, sales, repairs, and along with the support and assistance of Gurvin’s very qualified staff, the general day to day operation of Gurvin Jewellers.

Michael thoroughly assisting each and every client, but mostly enjoy the interaction of the many varied personalities that patronize Gurvin Jewellers Ltd..

Having been in the business for forty-two years, Michaels has had the privilege of learning almost every aspect of the jewellery business. These areas include the many various methods of attaining the required end result in the most timely and cost effective manner. Gurvin’s worldwide diamond and gem connections saved clients many thousands of dollars.

Michael looks forward to the honour of assisting you to the best of my ability and trust your relationship with Michael and Gurvin’s amazing staff  will be a fantastic one to establishing a lifelong friendship based on honesty and trust.

The best saying Michael has come across in his many years in the jewellery business is:

“Jewellery is not expensive, it’s priceless”
